The Greentree School Accessible Playground fundraising is inching closer and closer to become a reality.

Yesterday, April 26, two local businesses donated funds.

"We had Subway come out for a photo op at our playground where our new one is going in. They've given us $1,000 towards our fundraising for our playground. We had Centre Street Insurance come out as well with a total of $1,000 too," stated Kim Groves of the Greentree Parent Council. subway chequeKulwant Nijjar, Kim Groves and Erin Campbell-Bentley.

So far, the total is over halfway raised.

"We had a goal of $350,000 and the communities are really coming together to help us with that fundraising," expressed Groves.

The next fundraiser for the playground is May 27 for a Fun Casino Night.

"We're in need of volunteers still for that night helping with silent auction, raffle table, VIP service and table clean up. If someone is interested they can give Tina (Hodgson) a call at 403-436-0707."

On May 26 and 27, Greentree School is partnering up with Western GM for the Buick Test Drive fundraiser as well.
